Metaphor Therapy

Did you know that the subconscious mind stores and presents information in the form of visuals and that we all talk our deeper experiences through the use of descriptive visuals? These are known as Metaphors.

This tendency of the human mind to reveal itself through hidden words is said to a Metaphorical Expression, which also explains that the deeper underlying meaning that lies hidden in some potent descriptive words which are expressed in form of images. Needless to say that these images can form the very basis of a very effective communication & counseling session.

  • Human mind presents images in three different ways
    • Verbal metaphors
    • Drawing metaphors
    • Imaginary metaphors

What if we can learn to spot those words and visuals and decode them? Well! then we have a deeper meaning revealing to us in the insightful conversations that take place. We understand the core issue faster than we can believe and the transformation can happen faster than we can imagine. The art and science of dealing with this skill of Decoding, Developing and Substituting the metaphors is the basis of Metaphor therapy. World over, different psychologists have devised their own ways of using the metaphorical understanding in a very innovative and individualized style
